It is 1980, and one of the most successful and enduring mob families in America is in Philadelphia. When Old School Don Angelo Bruno is assassinated, a bloody new era begins.
There is mention that the Philadelphia Family is the "most violent family" in the mob, a title taken from author George Anastasia. Now, is that true? Seems hard to imagine... and how is such a thing measured? This segment has a good explanation of why Philadelphia is under the wing of the Gambino Family, dating back to 1959, and why Atlantic City is such a precious territory, not only because of the gambling, but the construction boom, loan sharking and more. East Coast mobsters missed out on Las Vegas, but this was their second chance.
